You develop a severe and irrational hatred of Jews, which you try to hide by calling them “Israelis”, convinced they are responsible for all the ills in the world. This bizarre condition, also known as mikecarltonitis, sees you re-hashing anti-semitic cartoons and caricatures from the ’30s and dressing them up as “progressive thinking”. In this state, you start to believe that Hamas are a peace-loving group of guitar-strumming hippies with flowers in their hair while Israelis are the goose-stepping re-incarnation of the Third Reich.
That was Rowan Dean writing in the Fairfax owned Australian Financial Review. So this rabid anti-semitism isn’t a Fairfax thing, it’s a SMH and The Age thing.
